Cracker, “Turn on, Tune in, Drop Out, Give Up with Me”
It’s from their mostly overlooked 2009 album, Sunrise in the Land of Milk and Honey. It’s a good album. You should own it. I’m going to see them in early January in Chicago. Tickets are only $15.00. Seriously, it’s a crime that Cracker isn’t huge. But I like only paying $15.00 to see perhaps the best rock and roll band in America.
Meanwhile, if you’re in the Raleigh area this Saturday:
